The Japanese embassy in Hanoi said on Monday (July 1) it had accredited them to apply for visas on behalf of tourists.

The seven, all Ha Noi-based, are VIETTOURIN, Vietnam Golden Team International Travel, Nam Cuong Tourism, New Royal Commercial and Services, International Golden Bridge, Victoria Investment Trade and Tourism Corporation, and Ha Noi Entertainment Services Corporation.


Besides, the Ha Noi branch of Vietnam Travel and Marketing Transports JSC (Vietravel Ha Noi) has been suspended for six months from July 1.

The embassy allows some travel companies which meet some certain standards to represent tourists who go on organised tours to apply for their visas.

In the first four months of this year, 178,000 Vietnamese tourists visited Japan, a year-on-year increase of 30 per cent, according to the Japan National Tourism Organisation.

Last year, Vietnam was the fastest growing tourism market of Japan, with more than 389,000 Vietnamese visiting that country.
